4 People have purchased this product
This Mino-yaki tea set is comprised of KOMON teapot and 2 matching cups, all crafted by Yamatsu. They have a 150 year history producing porcelain ceramic ware.
They combine history and refinement with modern aesthetics to produce tea ware that is as practical as it is beautiful.
They feature a traditional KOMON cypress or herringbone pattern. These types of repetitive patterns are ubiquitous in Japan and are derived from use on Kimono in particular.
The pattern is transferred to the ceramic ware using a traditional technique called ‘copper plate painting’. A pattern is engraved in a copper plate. Ceramic paint is applied to the copper plate, then transferred using paper to the ceramic ware before being fired in the kiln.
